Great Experience for anyone.
Sep 2021
It was very easy to make the booking on line and had some very helpful assistance from Zoe, pre-booking. Very friendly welcome on arrival with everything well organised and relaxed. I had 2 lessons on consecutive days with about 7 people per session. Our instructor who was from New Zealand (sorry forgot your name) was great. He was very clear with his instruction and was able to spend one to one with everyone in the class. I was able to stand on the board after the first lesson and in the second lesson a couple of us were fast tracked in to catching cleaner waves further out while the others were put through the first stages. Everyone in the class were well cared for and it was a great experience for all. I would highly recommend Cornish Wave for your surfing lessons. See you next year.

Amazing afternoon
Sep 2021 • Friends
The whole experience and meeting the team was fantastic, very well presented and our instructor Vicktor was lovely, made sure we all knew what to do before anything and was always willing to step in and show us what we were doing wrong on a 1v1 basis. Overall superb and highly recommended only issue is that it did seem a little rushed at some points.

Hi Robert, thank you for your review 😀 we’re super happy that you had a fantastic experience here at Cornish Wave! We strive to provide a more personal experience so it’s great to hear that Victor fulfilled that during your session! I will query him as to why the session may have felt rushed at points, occasionally this can occur in order to ensure your safety and momentum throughout the session, sometimes Mother Nature has her own plans down here in Cornwall! Thanks for using Cornish Wave!🤙

Best experience of our trip
Sep 2021 • Couples
Our surf lesson with Cornish Surf was so much fun and the highlight of our trip!

I looked around before booking and not only was Cornish surf most competitive on pricing, it also had great reviews so we decided to book!

Massive shout out to Max, our surf instructor, who was so encouraging and funny (at times), he even got me to stand a few times (before falling straight away). But as Max said - it’s not about standing, it’s about having fun - and fun is what we had!

Thanks team, we’re already planning our next trip to get back into the water :D

Hello Emily! Thank you very much for your review, it’s wonderful to hear you had a great surf lesson with Max, we like to think that his strong characteristics and good sense of humour suit the sessions well, like you said, fun is the most important factor for us here at Cornish Wave! Also loving the hashtags! #lowandyouwillgo 🤙🏼 It’s great that our passion for the water has been shared with you! It’d be great to have you back in the future! Cheers, The Cornish Wave Team.

An excellent place to learn how to surf and friendly staff to help with recommendations
Had a fantastic few days in Newquay, all helped by our surf instructor Victor who was fantastic. Made everything so simple and easy to grasp that we were surfing waves in no time. He was patient and full of great feedback. Customer service from the shop was 5 star as well.

The guys at the shop were so easy going and really helpful, they made everyone feel welcome and not to mention their knowledge of the sea and surfing in general - I’m just gutted I lost my Cornish Wave t-shirt on the way home! Will deffo be recommending them, and 100% using them for board hire next time I’m down there 🤙🏽

Honestly THE BEST activity you'll do in Newquay
Sep 2021
Absolutely fantastic experience and one that my partner & I will remember! We toured the South West this summer and the morning we spent with Gregor teaching us the basics on surfing was definitely a highlight! He was a fantastic instructor - very professional, but also really funny and engaging.
The price as well was excellent value for money, compared to other providers in the area.
All in all a class experience and wholeheartedly recommend!

Thanks Greg and your team - what you do is great!
